Occupational Therapists are a vital part of a team of professionals that assist with the rehabilitation from brain injury.  For the month of June, Brain Injury Awareness Month, our series will be providing solutions to assist with some of the many symptoms of brain injury. 

With a brain injury, many will have symptoms that include lack of focus, fatigue, poor concentration, forgetfulness and more.  These symptoms make it difficult for someone to complete daily tasks whether big or small.  It is often beneficial to have someone, like an OT, work with you to help break down tasks into smaller more manageable parts allowing for rest and providing multiple opportunities for accomplishment!
